# Introduction to Fluid Mechanics

Cyrus
Hey guys,

I haven't taken thermodynamics yet, I have only taken it in general chemistry, which amounts to pretty much nothing. But I've heard from many friends that Fluid mechanics is a very tough course, so I am trying to teach it to myself before I have to take it next year. I've only gotten through the first chapter, but its no joke! Alot of serious mathematics of differential equations on the very first example. The book is called "Introduction to Fluid Mechanics" Rober w.Fox and Alan T. McDonald. Do you guys think I am wasting my time having not taken thermo yet, or can I grasp any of the stuff going on here. On one example they used the first law of themrodynamics, so I had to sift through a thermo book to see the formula used and get a vague idea about it, to finish my way through the problem. Anyways, thanks for your important input.

Cheers,

Cyrus
